My camera's back so gotta quickly post this Little Birdie Dress I made for Hanan last week. It's clear here the little miss was not happy her picture taken. In fact she was cranky the whole day :P
This is a variation of the basic shirred sundress. I made it using Dana's Tutorial here. I already know how to sew a shirred sundress but I went for the variation as I really wanna be more confident with buttonholes. I chose the hardest (to me) design in her fabulous tute and made the dress using half yard of the birdie fabric and 4" x 44" of the tan colored Kona Cotton.
The buttonholes, well, my machine automatic buttonholer refused to budge on the shirred fabric besides, the button is too large to fit onto the gauge. So I improvised and manually created the buttonholes using tight zig zag stitches. Phewww....I had to practice a few times on scraps and thank God they came out perfect!
Oh I just wish she was as cooperative as she was below, on my dodgy mobile phone camera! She was smiling and posing but the picture came out blurry and I tried hard to edit it, I guess they are just beyond repair.
Lastly, I'm glad my camera is back. While it was away, I of course need to find a distraction and accidentally fell into the embrace of Twitter! Lol, like I don't have enough things to do already. I think many have seen the link on my sidebar. I somehow like the fact that I could just write one or two lines there when I'm not blogging. Let's see how long I'll stay on it :D
Before I end, I'd like to wish Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful mothers out there. Enjoy the wonderful gift of motherhood, it truly is priceless...
Till later, have a great weekend peeps! :)
